A real turkey at the State House

Turkey on Beacon Hill

A citizen who might want to buy a bird-identification book filed a complaint about a "confused pheasant" on Mt. Vernon Street behind the State House this morning.

Good to see the State Rep from Brookline walking around before heading to the State House!

What is 311 supposed to do there? Round the confused pheasant up and explain to it about one way streets and state government?

if this would happen in Beacon Hill?

I have had the unpleasant experience of finding human feces on the sidewalk or between cars near my Beacon Hill condo and have filed a 311 complaint at least twice (maybe 3 times) and it has been cleaned up.

But if I file a complaint about trash that hasn't been picked up because whatever - sometimes it is picked up and sometimes not.

Who's pooping on sidewalks or between parked cars anywhere, let alone Beacon Hill?

Peeing might be gross, but I can wrap my head around it. Poop on the other hand- that's just nasty.

A sad day for the TLF.

The pork lovers dominating Beacon Hill present little gastronomic threat to the might of our rafters.

Are there any animals that you don't consider "adorable?"

Vegetarianism never took hold in America because most men saw themselves not as turkeys but as temporarily confused pheasants.

Consider the neighborhood. On Beacon Hill, surely the resident made a typo and meant confused peasant.

but they were unable to find a pheasant plucker.

I am not a pheasant plucker—I'm a pheasant plucker's mate.

It worked for that pesky fire hydrant that John Kerry had moved so a turkey should be no problem.

This is the 20th time that you've worked your little apocryphal John Kerry story into something.

You always forget the part about how he paid the city to move that hydrant, and how it made an enormous amount of sense to move it.

Two abodes back, one of my neighbors had the hydrant moved next to the driveway, so there would be a parking space in front of the house and less likelihood that someone would park in the hydrant.

You don't have to be a politician, just a homeowner in a crowded neighborhood.

I thought this was my landlord who lives on this street, but the bird is a lot smarter than him.
